1st day of Kindergarten

Penny started Kindergarten today! We made this cute sign that I found on Pinterest 
about what she wanted to be when she grows up. 

She picked out her Hello Kitty dress, some black bike shorts, her sparkly black bobs 
and then a white headband. She looked fabulous!

On the way to school she realized she left her apple, that was 
for her teacher (yes, cliche), at home. Oh boy. The tears started to flow and I had to 
stop at the store and grab a new apple! All better now. 

I hope she has a great day at school and I know she will be a great 
student this year. The kid has a hunger for learning. 

And now a photobomb. 

And now for some random information so I can remember this
day for forever and ever. The date is August 23, 2012. Penny's
teacher is Mrs. Lindsey Riser. She sits on the row closest to the 
teachers desk which is probably for the best cause she is a 
talker! There is a cute little boy who sits to one side of her
and the other child wasn't there yet for the other side! There
is a bunch of kids in her class but I didn't count how many! 
Luke and Marley Jo from last year are in her class but
they are the only two. 

Well it sure has been a pretty long time since I have posted anything. 

I have been a busy bee since the last time I was on. I moved, had a new baby, and Lee went to work again as a pipeliner. Life has been hectic and I love (almost) every minute of it. 

I don't have a camera anymore tho I will remedy that as soon as I can. It was stolen, or something..it is a very long story and not one I want to air on my blog. 

Penny starts Kindergarten tomorrow. She is so very excited. Her teacher is Lindsey Riser and when we were talking about how she was getting a new teacher she had a million and one questions. 

"Is Mrs. Riser nice?" Yes.
"Do you know her?" Yes. We went to school together.
"Is Mrs. Bain going to be there?" Yes Mrs. Bain is going to be greeting her new class of students.
"Can I go give Mrs. Bain a hug?" Yes you can but you have to be very quick. 
"Are you going to hug Mrs. Riser?" Um. No? We are friends but we don't feel the need to hug.

Zoey cried so much about the fact that she is still not old enough to go to school. She misses the cutoff date by a few months. She is MORE than ready for school as she is very mature and very smart, but it just isn't going to happen this year. She just cried and cried. I bribed her by telling her we were going to go shopping for a birthday present, just me and her. 

Josie and Colt probably won't even notice Penny is missing. I will notice though. She is such a big helper and she is an overall great kid. She does have some enormous attitude but I sort of like it! 

Pictures to come tomorrow. You will have to excuse the terrible cell phone pictures.
